DeMarcus Cousins is four technical fouls away from an automatic one-game suspension.
On Monday night, referee Tre Maddox gave Cousins a technical foul. Cousins proceeded to press Maddox as to what the tech was for, but the ref wouldn't respond. Cousins then told him, "You don't have to act like an effing female." That led to his second tech of the game and NBA-high 12th of the season. Automatic suspensions kick in after No. 16, which shouldn't be too far away.
